Have you read Scott Rushby's guest blog about 'CALLING OUT THE GOLD'? It's a challenge to all of us to feedback well and a must read for every ministry leader.

ACCIDENTS WAITING TO HAPPEN

Click below to check out these photos of health and safety dangers. Use them to help train your leaders. Or springboard off them and find your own. Either way, help your leaders to think about the worst case scenario. Then those will probably never happen.

TRAINING PASSPORT FOR YOUTH LEADERS

If you're a senior youth leader and want to encourage your youth leaders to come along to training, why not introduce training passports? Designed by my friend and colleague, Jack Percey, these provide a way to record training undertaken and will encourage you to provide more training. Leaders can record training undertaken under each stamp. The original icons can also be downloaded for the use of your church youth ministry.

Simply, print the passport, fold it in half lengthways, then concertina it. Then you'll just need to run some training!

STILL NOT SURE HOW IT COULD WORK?

Here's an example of an event we ran. Short talk to start then leaders could choose three seminars out of a choice of nine to go to.

Too big?

That's OK, don't give them a choice. People often say to us they wanted to go to all of them, so let them.

If they stay in Room 1, they get a date under Health and Safety for Risk Assessment, under Bible for The Big Idea, and under Current Issues for Mental Health.

Then time to pray together.
